What You Should Know About E Waste

What is E Waste?

E waste is a term used to describe electronic waste. Once electronic or electrical equipment approaches the end if it's useful life and is replaced, what do you do with the old equipment? While some e waste is able to be recycled, others become trash or e scrap. If taken to an e waste recycling center your e waste can be properly disposed of rather than contributing to the e waste problem. 

Why is E Waste a problem?

The problem with e waste is it contains toxic chemicals, which if dumped in landfills, leaches into the soil. In 2018 there was over 50 million tons of e waste generated with about 12.5 % being recycled. To put this in perspective, computer monitors and older TV picture tubes contain an average of four pounds of lead. In addition, electronics can contain mercury, chromium, brominated flame retardents and other toxic substances.
